Serving in the Army until 1954, Darby earned an MBA at Cornell in 1956 and began working for Alcoa. In 1970 he started work for the U.S. government in the Office of Equal Opportunity and the Department of Commerce. With his wife he bought a greenhouse business and operated it from 1977 until 1993.
Restless in retirement, he took a job at Home Depot. Sadly, we have learned that he was our class’s first victim of COVID-19. Darby died April 9, 2020. He is survived by his children Polly, Peter, and William. To them we send sincere condolences.
